Artfield Fell wind farm is located within Dumfries and Galloway approximately 9km north of the village of Glenluce. The site consists of 15 turbines and was commissioned in July 2005.
As the name suggests, the wind farm is built on a hill and has fine views across to Luce Bay in the south, and Stranraer. The site covers an area of approximately 2.5 square kilometres and the nearby farm uses the site for grazing cattle, sheep and horses.
The site has a seven turbine extension (Balmurrie Fell) which was completed in September 2012.
